Beetroot cutlet i tried few months back and that too without onion and garlic. Initially i was bit skeptical about the output, but to my surprise it was awesome and especially kids loved it a lot. I have added paneer too for binding and it was very nice.  I have already posted Beetroot vadai . Try out these easy cutlets for kids and i am sure they will love it.
